with 24 out of 24 votes on bills rated by the NC Chamber as pro-business.

Cornelius, NC: NC Senator Jeff Tarte continued to gain support in his race for the NC Senate District 41 seat by today securing the endorsement of the North Carolina Chamber of Commerce. Senator Tarte was one of only four members to receive a perfect 24 for 24 voting record on bills supported by the NC Chamber.

“These pro-jobs candidates understand the policies that enhance North Carolina’s business climate, improve our education and talent supply system, develop our infrastructure, and boost entrepreneurship and innovation,” said Lew Ebert, president and CEO of the North Carolina Chamber. “As a result of pro-growth policies advanced the last two years, businesses of all sizes that employ millions of North Carolinians can look to expand, spurring further business investments and job creation. However, there is work still to be done, and we know that we can count on these leaders to focus on policies that equip North Carolina to create 1 million new jobs over the next 15 years.” You can see the full slate of endorsements here:

“I was proud to have been one of the strongest pro-business advocates within the NC Senate this last term,” stated Senator Tarte. “Our pro-business legislation has resulted in North Carolina having the 2nd fastest dropping unemployment rate in the nation, changed our state from being the 46th worst tax climate for business up to 11th best, as well as now starting the pathway to fixing compensation for our public school teachers. We have made progress for our businesses, community, and citizens.”

With this endorsement, Senator Tarte now adds the NC Chamber endorsement to his support by Senator Richard Burr, Governor Pat McCrory, Lt. Governor Dan Forest, Congressman Robert Pittenger, and over 101 more public officials from across the state.
